Facts about Lucy

  • Breed: Shar Pei
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Someone once labeled our little Lucy as a “bad dog” because of her reactions to other dogs and she has spent the last few years in Rescue trying to live up to her name because no one really understood her. Then one of our NASPR volunteers stepped up to prove that label WRONG!!! True that Lucy can only go to an only-dog home but she has so much love to give and so much now to prove after her recent training where she was proven to be a “good girl” and not a “bad dog” through a training process known as redirection.

Lucy is @ 4 years old. She is completely vetted and healthy and is a beautiful fawn colored horsecoat that is as soft as butter. She quickly has become a favorite at the training facility she is attending and won over every person there with her love for humans and her desire to please. If you are fortunate to be her new owner, Lucy comes with several free sessions with her trainer who is anxious to pass along his knowledge of what makes Lucy tick so that she will be successful in her new home.

We do know that Lucy does very well with children and adults. However, again, she must not be in a home with other dogs even though she is absolutely ok to encounter other dogs on walks and in public settings as long as she is on a leash. You will be richly blessed when you realize that Lucy has only attention for you and will do her best to make you happy.

Lucy was severely emaciated from her life on the street and it is generally understood that her hatred of other dogs probably came from her being attacked while she was a stray. She was not spayed when she came into Rescue so you can only imagine the horror she faced daily.

It is now Lucy’s time to SHINE. What a great dog, labeled so unfairly in the beginning, but one who has now shown the world just how fine a dog she has become and how great a companion she would be for a family wanting only a single pet.

About North American Shar Pei Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

North American Shar Pei Rescue was established to assist and augment the rescue efforts of the Chinese Shar Pei Club of America Inc., as well as our Canadian neighbors to the North. NASPR is a non-profit 501C Corporation. We are an all volunteer organization and depend on your support to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome the hundreds of Shar-Pei in need each year. If you can not adopt at this time, please consider becoming a volunteer, foster or become a guardian angel (financial sponsor) for one of our many dogs in need.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Most of our Shar-Pei are in volunteer foster homes throughout Texas, Louisiana & Oklahoma. We also have a temporary holding facility where some of our Shar-Pei are housed while undergoing medical treatment or waiting for a foster or forever home. We do hold adoption events at Petsmart, Petco and other locations throughout the Southwest Region (Texas/Louisiana/Oklahoma) where some of our Shar-Pei that are ready for adoption can be seen.

Our Adoption Process...

Please complete the ONLINE ADOPTION APPLICATION form located at Your application will be forwarded to the nearest volunteer. We do some basic checks and will then contact you to set up a time for one of our representatives to come to your home and visit. This gives us a better idea of the type of Shar-Pei that would work best with your family and of course be sure that it would be a safe environment. At that time, or shortly thereafter, we could discuss the dogs that we think might work best for you. We have had tremendous success in making happy placements. We ask a minimum adoption fee/donation of $250 to help defer the costs of medical and miscellaneous expenses incurred but it can vary depending on the dogs individual needs/expenses. All dogs are placed spayed/neutered and current on all vaccinations.
